New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took to Facebook Wednesday night to express his condolences after two Boston firefighters were killed in a 9-alarm fire at 298 Beacon St., not far from where he and wife Gisele Bundchen once lived.
Brady said on Facebook:
On behalf of my entire family, I want to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the Boston Fire Department and the families of our brave and selfless firefighters who gave their lives for our protection and safety today, and to the entire firefighting community who protect us each and every day. All of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Brady and Bundchen used to live at 310 Beacon St. They sold that luxury condominium for $9.2 million in 2012. The couple are currently working on completing construction on a Brookline residence.
Brady was in the neighborhood today and may still be renting locally while he awaits completion of the Brookline home. Photographs from the Boston Globe (above) and the Boston Herald showed Brady watching as firefighters battled today’s blaze.
